  1. Hey Avion, nice job! One piece of advice I have is to overlap your basket weave tool instead of trying match it up to the previous stamp,This will eliminate the guess work and ensure you have a straight line every time. Hope this helps! Again good job! That molding looks great! http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=oQcH2A6wxgc

  3. Constructing Spur Straps

    I myself downloaded the free tandy pack, but if you have a smaller normal size printer it will be to small at 100%;you could always print, cut paper, and put it around your boot for size. I recommend starting on a one piece spur strap or "Dove Wing" . Question 1: Many spur strap patterns use 8-9 oz. ; Question 2: you do not need to line the straps, it is optional and many do not. Question 3:Some are done for decoration like these that I did yesterday: http://pinterest.com/Usernametaken10/in-the-process-of-making/ and others have a lining and that is why they are stitched. If you would like the Dove Wing pattern I would be happy to email it to you just PM me your email address. I hope this information helps.
